NBA Betting Week 5 Analysis Highlights Coldest ATS Teams in the League!

Written by on December 3, 2015

Okay, NBA betting buffs, you should know that wagering on consistent ATS losers can be just as profitable a betting venture as wagering on their ATS winning counterparts. While finding consistent ATS winners is always a smart way to wager, finding their polar-opposite ATS counterparts can be just as profitable to your NBA wagering success. Thanks to this expert NBA betting analysis on the coldest ATS teams in the league heading into Thursday night’s six-game slate of NBA action, you’re going to find out which teams are struggling the most to cover the spread. With that said, let’s get started.

Not – These teams have all failed to cover their NBA Odds in at least four of their last five games.

New York 1-4 ATS

Sure, the Knicks are 1-4 ATS in their last five games and it’s easy to see why when you’re averaging 91.4 points per game and allowing 99.0 per night defensively, but the Knicks snapped a four-game skid by beating winless Philly on Wednesday and have a newfound status as a team now headed in the right direction, thanks mostly to the wonderful play of rookie Kristaps Porzingis.

Phoenix 1-4 ATS

The Suns have lost two straight and four of five while failing to cover the spread in each loss. Phoenix has allowed at least 120 points in three of those losses and gave up a whopping 135 points to Golden State last Friday. The Suns are ranked 27th in points allowed (105.8 ppg) and will fail to cover the spread at a high rate this season if they continue to play the kind of defense they have so far.

New Orleans 1-4 ATS

The Pelicans looked like they were starting to turn the corner a couple of weeks back after a horrendous start, but they’re back to playing pitiful basketball and have lost four straight heading into Thursday night. Making matters worse is the fact that New Orleans has allowed at least 108 points in four of their last five games and 111 or more in three of those contests. The Pels are giving up a league-high 109.1 points per night and suddenly, superstar forward Anthony Davis is struggling.

Denver 1-4 ATS

Denver-Nuggets-NBA-Betting-compressor The Nuggets have lost each of their last five games by at least nine points and simply look like they don’t care very much at all if you ask me. Denver was held to 81 points or less in three of those losses while failing to score more than 94 points in any contest. The Nuggets rank 26th in scoring (96.2 ppg). Cleveland, Oklahoma City, Houston, Miami and Atlanta are among a group of 15 teams that have all gone 2-3 ATS over their last five games. The Cavs have lost two of their last five and got dominated in their 97-85 loss to Washington on Tuesday. Oklahoma City has won four of five despite their recent ATS struggles. Those little quitters that are know as the Houston Rockets have managed to win three of five but beat the lowly Sixers, Pelicans and rebuilding Knicks along the way. The Heat have alternated ATS wins and losses over each of their last five games while the Hawks have alternated both, SU and ATS wins and losses over each of their last five games.
